DE Sam Montgomery (6-5 240) of Greenwood has eliminated Oregon his mother said Tuesday afternoon. Montgomery was scheduled to take an official visit to Oregon Tuesday but canceled the trip.
"Even though Oregon has a lot to offer, he felt that it was not the place for him," Mrs. Montgomery said. He will visit Tennessee this weekend.
Montgomery also has visited Michigan, UNC and LSU officially, and USC and Clemson unofficially.
USC head coach Steve Spurrier met with Montgomery and his mother Monday, and Mrs. Montgomery talked on the phone with Clemson coaches Monday night.
She said more cuts are coming. "We're going to do some serious soul searching," Mrs. Montgomery said. "It just hard to say good bye. You get to like them as a person."
Coaches from LSU, Tennessee and North Carolina have said they will visit Montgomery this week.
